The proposed $3.5 million in renovations to Memorial Complex & Town Center, Pulis Fields and the Larkin House, which would include installing artificial turf at Memorial and adding lighting at Pulis, has drawn the ire of some residents who've expressed concerns about the potential noise, light and increased traffic that could come with the renovated fields.
Recently Patch went to the fields in question and caught up with some coaches, including a Wyckoff Lacrosse coach, who expressed support for the field renovations.
The specific proposals made by the Parks and Recreation Foundation include the following:
Memorial Field: Adding a large synthetic turf with a multi-sport field; a new performing arts gazebo; snack stand and reflecting pool.
Pulis Field: Adding two multi-sport synthetic fields; one grass multi-sport field, lights; a walking/running track, snack stand.
The Park and Rec foundation is scheduled to make followup presentation to the Township Committee at its April 5th meeting.
